JENNER AG HONORED WITH SECOND GREAT GAME OF BUSINESS ALL-STAR AWARD
Harristown, Ill., September 8, 2017 – Jenner Ag is pleased to announce it has received an unprecedented second Great Game of Business All-Star Award – one of only two companies to achieve this honor.
"Ag's been a tough business for six years. And if you can get any growth out of a business that was dependent on a marketplace that's declining, but yet to get double digit growth during that particular point in time, you've really got to do something special,” said Great Game of Business creator Jack Stack when presented Jenner Ag’s All-Star award.
Stack, a pioneer of the open-book management leadership model, developed The Great Game of Business as part of a strategy to turn around SRC Holdings Corporation. When Stack took over the company as CEO in 1983, the company was failing. Since using the open-book model under Stack, SRC has started, acquired and owned more than 60 businesses and created thousands of jobs. Stock value has increased 360,000%. Today, The Great Game of Business operates as the educational arm of SRC Holdings.
The Great Game of Business All-Star Award was presented at the 25th Annual Gathering of Games, the world’s largest open-book management conference, September 6-8 in Dallas, Texas.
